General Discussion:

Who is the board?  From the discussion that ensued, a board member is any club member who cares to identify themselves as a board member and is willing to attend a monthly meeting  (the second Tuesday of every month) and is motivated to work to accomplish the clubs mission statement.  This may change if numbers are becoming too great.

Current self-identified board members are:

Craig Prather
Howard Williams
Nicholas Dumbroadskavich

We anticipate the board to grow.  If you are interested in becoming a board member come to the next board meeting.
